Today, I bought a new bicycle. First one in, oh, two decades or so.
And I had more fun in two hours than I had in the last three months.
I rode down to Cannonsburg, a re-creation of a post-Revolutionary village. Here, I got onto the Greenway, a walking & biking trail that snakes along the Stone’s River.
Brillant spring green, wildflowers & perfect weather. The sound of running water everywhere.
People walking their dogs. One woman had a jet black Great Dane. It was huge. I asked her, “Dog, or horse, M’am?” Got a smile.
Muskrat diving intop the river. Trout jumping.
The scenery racing by. A fine breeze.
Got to the footbridge. Canoeist. Fishermen. Families.
Stopped off along the route home, at a used bookstore. Bought nothing, but enjoyed that, too.
A fine day.
